As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”…

J. D. Robb: Echoes in Death

Azt leszámítva, hogy valahol a kétharmada környékén egy kb 40-50 oldalnyi részen már-már leült a történet, jó rész volt ez is. Nem éreztem annyira ütősnek, mint mondjuk az előzőt, de jó volt.
A hangsúly most első sorban a pszichológiai részen volt, azon, ahogy körbejárták az emberi szörnyeteg témakörét. Tetszett a jellemábrázolás, és a változatosság kedvéért most is nagyon élveztem Eve és Roarke közös jeleneteit.

Put the past behind you—that’s what people always said. But those people didn’t get that the past was always behind you. Like a hound on the scent.

It was like being in a reverse snow globe, Eve thought. Outside the glass dome, in the streams of the exterior lights, the snow fell fast, as if shaken from the sky by an angry hand. Winter winds swirled and tossed it into dramatic sweeps, and through the sweeps, the lights of the city gleamed and sparked. The great park spread in a study of black and white. The streets rayed in stark lines, empty of traffic with only a scatter of emergency vehicles trudging through the thick carpet of snow.

Next to stupidity, ego’s the thing that causes the most mistakes.

Eve didn’t get it, just didn’t get it. Who the hell decided everyone was supposed to go mad with romance and gift buying on some random day in February? Hadn’t everybody just gone mad with good cheer and gift buying in December?

Bodies in, bodies out, she thought. Bodies opened, bodies closed. And somewhere in that process, the bodies talked to the ME.
